In about 1973 i purchased a 17ft clinker boat with a Stuart Turner engine which I used on Sydney Harbour for 2 or 3 years and "lent" it to the extended family while travelling. On my return i found that it had a Chapman Twin fitted and had been greatly restored.
My question relates to the story given to me by the marina salesman that it was a relatively new boat made by cockatoo island apprentices using hardwood keel and ribs and marine ply hull planks, [which they were], and that it was a norwegian design.
Has anyone any information on the existence of others of this type of craft?
